Product Description

The new Eco-Tech Vessel Zephyr features a full eco-friendly Paulownia timber making this lightweight and durable pocket rocket the ultimate funboard.

The Zephyr is fast becoming one of the most popular hybrid funboards in the surf industry today. Its impressive shape will see you cutting through fat sections with ease, flying down the line with increased speed and precision and catching more waves then you ever imagined. 

Its shape is extremely unique with carefully thought out volume distribution, which not only offers improved paddle power, but also less drag and more lift to ensure your surfing can be taken to the next level. The shape has been refined and tweaked over the past year with the introduction of S*LAB’s Computational Fluid Dynamics testing (CFD). This technology has helped fine tune the boards shape to ensure maximum speed, manoeuvrability and surfing capability.

The Zephyr features a low entry rocker for wave catching potential, a wider outline for stability and control and an aggressive double flyer to rounded pin tail which allows the board to hold tight through power turns. The fuller nose also puts volume forward, allowing for maximum glide, drive and wave catching.

The board is constructed using carbon infused cloth which covers the deck stand area and provides amazing flex qualities with extra drive when top-to-bottom surfing. The board comes with a 5 fin configuration and performs well as both a thruster, quad or even twin fin.  

These boards are awesome in all wave conditions and are extremely addictive to surf!

Best suited for Beginners to Experienced users who want forgiving, fast and progressive hybrid funboard

  1. Super fun board

    Posted by Craig D on 23rd Oct 2019

    I moved from a 7s Double Down to this board. I find it easier to get into waves, much faster, and the narrower tail makes it easier to jam hard turns. Delivered quickly and build quality is great. Really loving it, it makes you look forward to the next surf!

  2. Excellent Service

    Posted by Steven Polwarth on 23rd Aug 2019

    I ordered the Zypher online and the board arrived to me at the Sunny Coast 2 days later. Super stoked with the service and the board looks great!!!
    Can't wait to hit the water.

    Very good service from advice to delivery
    First ride today and very impressed, been on a foam all summer and this is great.

  4. excellent board

    Posted by jacob reynolds on 11th Apr 2019

    this board is unreal, my first ever board and it makes hard work easy ! i’m 76kg on the 6”4, my level of surfing is beginner, this board is very easy to adapt to, has so much boyancy for the smaller waves but also allowing me to have lots of fun at the same time! highly recommend this board.

  5. Awesome

    Posted by Alistair on 11th Oct 2017

    Beginner surfer but don’t really have the cash to buy a long board and also a shorter one for when I progress. Decided to go for this after reading the reviews and it’s awesome. Can’t get enough of it!!

  6. Harder learning curve

    Posted by Ben on 13th Jul 2017

    Bought the Zypher a month before. I have been surfing for 1.5 years now and the board quite agile with handling and a fun board but definitely a steeper learning curve for someone whose only been surfing for 1.5 years, thats just my personal opinion.

  7. Great board for an older bloke

    Posted by Nathan Mansfield on 4th Jul 2017

    I was finding it harder getting into waves on the traditional shortboard as I have gotten older and heavier. The Zephyr is awesome with more density up front giving great paddle power and buoyancy. Getting into the waves earlier means less late drops, more waves and more fun. I'm riding the Zephyr 4" shorter than the old board too.

    I was confident after some researching and reading all the reviews, and after getting my zephyr this week (at a steal on sale under $400), I have just surfed for 4.5 hours in glassy 4+ ft walls down here in Vic. Best session for me for a while and I can honestly say best board I've ridden in a while. I'm 5'10, 77kg, a solid intermediate surfer, and I'm ecstatic about this board. Even though I chose this board as a fun board "back-up" summer groveller with about 3 extra litres than I've been riding for a while, this board is no back up, this will be my winter one- board- quiver for sure!! So fast, stable turns on a dime if need be - my drawn out cut backs never felt so good. Not to mention the speed down the line and the jet- like push it provided getting around sections and coming out of the wash - caught me out a couple of times, but other than that I've never adapted to a new board so fast. As Beau Young says on his you-tube clip, this is a MUST HAVE fun board. I will be recommending this highly to everyone!
    I bought an amazing grace for my aspiring missus from the Noosa store last year, and was very impressed. I'm only more so now. Hats off Surfboard Warehouse, you are onto something here, I agree with everyone thus far, great service great products and unbeatable value. My V3 rocket and Lost Subscorcher will be gathering dust this winter. Seriously, at under half the price of big name "brand" boards which I'm usually a slave to, why would you look elsewhere??? pretty sure I won't be from now on!!

  9. Best board ever!!!!

    Posted by Cai on 29th Mar 2017

    Hi, my dad bought a 6fter and it the best board ever. It handles 6ft surf no problems. I will get one again. For its price it is one sick stick.

  10. Perfect Timing

    Posted by Daniel on 10th Mar 2017

    The team at Surfboard Warehouse were really helpful in guiding me to the right size for this board. I was super impressed with how quick the turnaround from purchase to delivery was. I was hitting the surf within 2 days. The board is an absolute gem and well worth its value.
    Thank you SW team.

  11. Absolutely recommended!

    Posted by James on 4th Mar 2017

    Can't speak highly enough of this board. Despite the super cheap price this board feels very durable and very well made! it's so comfortable to ride and it really is a wave catching machine! the way the width and thickness peaks around your chest make it feel like you're on a minimal despite only being 6'4" I think i may have to buy another one but slightly smaller! not to mention the delivery time was absolutely awesome, only took 3 working days and i was out enjoying it!

  12. You gotta get one.

    Posted by Jimmy Gain on 15th Dec 2016

    Have just bought my second Vessel board and cannot speak highly enough about their performance. Have been surfing the 6'2" which is great but decided to drop down to the 5'10". such a responsive board. Have 10 boards in my garage but all I seem to surf lately are the Zephyrs'. Took the 6'2" to Indo in Aug/Sep and handled everything thrown at it. I am 70 yrs of age and find that I can still surf these boards with no problems. The Surfboard Warehouse is great with good quick delivery times. Would highly recommend.

  13. Great board

    Posted by Jase on 3rd Nov 2016

    i was surfing 2-4ft waves and the board was so fun, highly recomend

  14. It's Good!

    Posted by RH on 23rd Aug 2016

    Very happy with this board! Fast and fun! Go one size smaller than your thinking, there's plenty of width and volume through the nose. Very easy to paddle and get waves. The delivery was very easy and fast!! Couldn't fault it.

    Paddles easy, turns great and holds in the steeper sections as well as cruising through the fatter bits. Used in 2ft slop and 7ft peaks. Surfed it at points and beach breaks. Excellent value for money and will defiantly buy another one when i've overused my current one. (board 5'10, I weigh 68kg's, probably could of gone the 5'8)

  17. Punches above it's price tag!

    Posted by Dez Robertson - Newcastle on 22nd Jul 2016

    Just had my 3rd surf on this board and even though I'm in my 50s, I'm grinning like a surf-stoked grom again! This board is incredible. I've surfed it twice as a quad and once as a thruster and so far in waves ranging from 2 - 4 foot, the quad setup is winning in the performance category, but only just. The drive I'm getting off the bottom turns on quads is mind-blowing and the speed it generates on the open face is exhilarating. All up, I have to say that in 30+ years of surfing, this is one of the most fun boards I've surfed - period! I got the 6 footer, but could have easily gone smaller with the amount of float in these boards. Catching waves is a breeze and duck-diving is no hassle even with the volume. I can see this being my go-to board for a long, long time. Talk about value for money! Great service too. Well done team, love your work!

  18. This one works

    Posted by Scott Crooks on 14th Jun 2016

    I am 80 kg and bought the 5''10 heaps of float, wish I went smaller, but great all rounder, super fun, surfed it only 4 times and as a surfer for 40 years you know this board works straight away none of this trying to make it work, well done.

  19. My favourite board ever.

    Posted by Matt on 10th Jun 2016

    Was in Byron and picked up the 6.0
    Surfed mushy wategos, hollow shorie's down Suffolk/Broken way, and my local reef back here in Vic. Go's unreal in everything.
    Bought a Lost V3 rocket at Christmas. Is great, but gathering dust now at double the price. Wish I knew about you guys.
    The Zephyr is my go to now for 90% of surfs.
    Wouldn't mind the 6'2 for that tremor bit more volume.
    Like the look of the Carbon Jet too.

  20. Champ in Bali.

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Jun 2016

    1 Board from 3 to 6 ft killed it throughout Bali.

  21. Best board out

    Posted by Xavier Manson on 22nd May 2016

    Posted by Shane on 19th May 2016

  23. Fun and performance

    Posted by Michael Hawes on 18th Apr 2016

    Great board and performed well straight out of the packaging. Lots of fun. Thanks guys at Surfboard Warehouse for prompt professional service.

  24. Love this board

    Posted by Kate on 1st Mar 2016

    Got back into surfing after moving from QLD to VIC years ago. This board has blown me away with how good it is for the price, So much fun! Everything with the buying process and delivery was super smooth and fast - can't rate it highly enough.

  25. Great Board. Great Price
